Thames Ward Community Project
An independent and resident-led community organisation for the people of Barking Riverside, Scrattons Farm and Thames View.
Funded by The National Lottery Community Fund and Trust for London and based at Riverside Campus, London Borough of Barking and Dagenham
"TWCP is doing a really good job on the health front. Resident empowerment, education, improving health and allowing people to see change in their everyday life is important"
"TWCP accompany residents in the processes of change taking place in Barking Riverside because we need backup, support, training and resources to make sure that our voices are heard"
A STRONGER, MORE COHESIVE COMMUNITY
The community will be stronger and more cohesive, with pride in its diversity and the leadership and organisational capacity to influence change, to seize new opportunities and build a sustainable future
A HEALTHIER COMMUNITY
Residents, especially the elderly, will enjoy better physical and mental health and well-being, through exercise, better eating, reduced isolation, mutual support and better services
A MORE CONFIDENT AND SKILLED COMMUNITY
Residents, especially young people, will gain skills and feel more confident about their future employability and life chances
A CLEANER, MORE ATTRACTIVE ENVIRONMENT
The image of Thames ward will improve – people will perceive it to be a cleaner, more attractive environment that encourages neighbourliness and makes better use of local facilities, open space and buildings.
